Glad to be home!

I am really glad to be home! I have spent the last week in Mississippi with my mom. I love to spend time with her, but it is so good to be home. We really didn't do that much while I was there. We had planned on taking a trip up to Virginia to visit with my brother, however, the day before we were to leave my mom decided she didn't want to go. I still haven't figured that one out, but whatever makes her happy. I wanted to get her out of the house, since my dad died, she tends to stay at home too much by herself. There really isn't that much to do around where she lives, I did find that there is an apron museum not to far from her, so on Friday we headed to Iuka, MS to find the world's first apron museum. To my surprise, it was wonderful. The lady who owns and runs it was " a font of apron information", she has several hundred aprons, some dating back to the early civil war. I had the best time looking at all of them. My mom even enjoyed it!
One of my favorite aprons was the one above that had a looked like a face. I never knew there were so many different kinds of aprons. If for any reason you are ever in North Mississippi, I would highly recommend a visit to the apron museum. All in all in was a good trip. I managed to see relatives that I rarely ever see. I was able to spend time with cousins, and their kids. I had not seen some of them in over a year, it is hard to believe how quickly they are growing. It makes me wish I could spend more time with them.



Now that I am home, I realize that school will be starting back all too soon. I have so many projects that I had planned on completing this summer, that still aren't complete. I guess that means that I am going to be very, very busy in the next few weeks.

I love the face one also! I love the old Aunt Jemima things, as my granny had them in her kitchen. I've never seen so many neat ones. What a treasure you found! I'd love to see more photos...
Glad you are home too, but know your mom enjoyed seeing you. XO

I just spent 2 weeks in TN visiting my mom each day, so I know how you feel about getting to visit your mom and how good it is to be home again! I never heard of an apron museum. How unique!
